Emulates Natural Care Guide to Natural Skin Care Products
While you may think you prefer natural skin care, some natural ingredients may not work the best on your skin. What should drive your purchase of skin care products is how well they work on your skin type.
In today’s world of eco-conscious living, being good to the environment is a high priority, whether you’re buying light bulbs or a cream for dry skin and wrinkles. What’s more, cosmetics organizations exploit that by offering common skin care items with fixings that are touted as being better for your skin and earth inviting.
Products that have Natural and Organic ingredients that come from plants or nature — think honey, beeswax, Moringa Oil, or Emu Oil — tend to be labeled as natural. They may or may not have the same ingredients that other products do. And you can find them everywhere, from drugstores to department store makeup counters to boutiques and even at dermatologists’ and Boise plastic surgeons’ offices. In fact, so-called natural skin care products are so ubiquitous that it’s hard to tell whether they’re any better for you than other products.
Natural’ really doesn’t tell you anything, it’s a way of marketing products to make you feel good about its use when people are trying to be green and think environmentally.
There are some ingredients in natural products that are soothing and calming to the skin, even if your skin is sensitive. The benefits of these ingredients:
- Emu Oil, Moringa Oil, Herbs, olive Leafs, Comfrey Leafs, Chamomile flowers, slippery elm bark, essential oil, and more.. These ingredients can calm irritated, dry skin that’s prone to eczema.
- Vitamins C and E have tangible benefits for the skin. They search for free radicals, which damage cell DNA, leading to wrinkles and skin aging. Regrettably, many over-the-counter products don’t have a high enough concentration of antioxidants for them to be effective and are a huge waste of money. But you can buy products such as Body Lotion with Emu Oil, Dry Skin and Eczema Crème with Moringa Oil and many more products in our store Emulate Natural Care.
Natural Skin Care Concerns
Occasionally natural and organic skin care products are not the best selection when you’re searching for a moisturizer for dry skin or a cream to treat your wrinkles. Among the drawbacks are:
Sensitive skin irritation: Your skin type should dictate the type of products you can use.
Emu Oil and Moringa oils have been shown to cause very few issues due to the natural healing power of the oils themselves.
Allergic reaction: Allergens in natural skin care products can cause problems for some people. Thus the problem with cosmetics bought at stores like Walgreens, CVS, Grocery stores, and even places like Macy’s and Nordstrom’s.
Breakouts: Someone who’s acne-prone may not be able to tolerate natural lotions that contain oils because they may clog pores and lead to breakouts.
High cost: You can find expensive traditional and natural skin care products, but in general, natural skin care products tend to be very competitively priced among the major name brands and of course are better quality and have higher amounts of actual ingredients. Remember you pay for the name and companies advertising somewhere.
What to Look For in Natural Skin Care Products
The key to choosing natural skin care products is to choose wisely. When you’re shopping for skin care and you’re considering natural products, keep these things in mind:
The fewer ingredients, the better. When you’re buying any type of skin care product, including natural products, look for one with fewer ingredients, Natural skin care products tend to have extra ingredients added to them, but the more that’s in it, the more likely it is to cause irritation or an allergic reaction, she says.
Store brand cosmetics tend to have a lot of added ingredients and fillers. Typically the larger the brand the better the product, and of course higher costs. However with Emulate Award winning products you don’t have to go waste money for a named brand product when you get better quality, more natural, organic, and vegan friendly products from us.
The bottom line is that you should choose products that work for your skin, gives you results, and have the feel and fragrance that you enjoy.
